The Cultivate Program
Building continuously our Appreciation of Art, participants in Studio Teens embrace learnings about themes in Current Exhibitions as well as drawing on Concepts & Contemporary Understandings. Participants look at ideas stemming from Design Purpose, Materiality & Products on the market, historical references selected by Erin, and relevant information to inform their practice, and inspire personal projects.
The Cultivate Program connects in some of the thematic appreciations in the Art of Giving Art Program, recognizing the importance of Culture, the communication of values & interpretative recognitions & viewpoints of ‘story telling’.
